Semantic Application for Audio and Music (SAAM 2018)

SAAM 2018
Workshop on Semantic Applications for Audio and Music
9th October 2018

Background and Objectives

Music provides a fascinating and challenging field for the application of Semantic Web technologies. Music is culture. Yet as knowledge, music takes fundamentally different forms: as digital audio waveforms recording a performance (e.g. MP3); symbolic notation prescribing a work (scores, Music Encoding Initiative); instructions for synthesising or manipulating sounds (MIDI, Digital Audio Workstations); catalogues of performance or thematic aggregations (playlists, setlists); psychological responses to listening; and as an experienced and interpretable art form. How can these heterogeneous structures be linked to each other? To what end? How do we study these materials? Can computational and knowledge management analyses yield insight within and across musics? Semantic Web technologies have been applied to these challenges – across industry, memory institutions and academia – but with results reported to conferences representing the communities of different disciplines of musical study.

The workshop will bring together established members of the Music Informatics and ISWC communities with users, practitioners and researchers beyond its normal boundaries. SAAM will encourage a multidisciplinary audience, providing attendees with the opportunity of learning about the needs and experiences of these users. Conversely, music specialists will be availed of the latest developments in the Semantic Web, and how they can be applied to their work. SAAM also invites the wider community to discover “what makes music interesting!”.
